What is Chelation Therapy?
Chelation (pronounced “key-lay-shun”) is a highly effective treatment for clearing heavy metals, excess calcium, and artery-damaging chemicals from the bloodstream. Although it was first used to treat heavy metal poisoning, chelation has since proven valuable for decreasing oxidative stress on tissues (lowering free radicals) and as an alternative treatment of heart disease and other circulatory disorders.
How does Chelation Therapy work?
Chelation involves the intravenous administration of a “chelating agent”, the most common and safest is ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). Chelating agent such as EDTA enter the bloodstream and latch onto heavy or toxic metals such as; mercury, arsenic, aluminum, lead, iron, and cadmium that build up in tissues causing extensive free radical damage to cells, tissues and organs. By binding to these heavy metals and carrying them out of the body, this process reduces the body’s toxic metal burden and helps slow and reverse the process of many chronic conditions namely atherosclerosis.
A Surprising Discovery
EDTA was one of the first chelating agents used for circulatory conditions in the 1950s. As World War II veterans afflicted with lead poisoning from painting battleships underwent chelation to “get the lead out,” physicians noticed that those who had chest pain or leg pain due to atherosclerosis were experiencing almost unbelievable improvement in these symptoms.
Since then over a million patients have undergone chelation therapy for a wide range of circulatory problems. Chelation has given heart disease patients an alternative to invasive heart surgery and has enabled patients with intermittent claudication to increase their walking distance. It has been used to alleviate angina, to reduce high blood pressure, and to spare diabetic patients from limb amputation.
What are the disease fighting
benefits of Chelation Therapy?
Because the very aging process itself correlates with ongoing free radical damage, it is no surprise that a large variety of symptoms have been reported to improve following chelation therapy, even symptoms not directly caused by circulatory disease.
While there is no scientific evidence that chelation is a cure for these diseases, symptoms of Arthritis, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Psoriasis, high blood pressure, and Scleroderma have all been reported to improve with chelation therapy. In fact, there is no better treatment for scleroderma. Vision has been restored in macular degeneration. Patients generally feel younger and more energetic following therapy, even when taken for purely preventive reasons. In fact, chelation therapy is more desirable for prevention that it is for established disease. Preventive medicine is always preferable to late stage crisis intervention.
Who needs Chelation Therapy?
At EnerChanges we have have performed over 5000 safe and effective chelation therapy treatments at our office. Chelation therapy is a powerful detoxification therapy that removes heavy metals, reducing free radicals by a million fold and heart disease by 90%. Since chelation works by lowering inflammation and free radicals, while assisting in tissue repair, it is standard part of every patient’s optimal aging program.
